Dramatic video has emerged of a mudslide sweeping through Turkmenistan's Akhal province. Footage obtained by RFE/RL's Turkmen Service showed water and mud raging through the village Dowgala on August 10. Locals in the region said at least 25 people were killed. News of the natural disaster has been slow to emerge after government officials tried to conceal the mudslide as Turkmenistan prepares to host the Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games.
